That bench reaction was awesome. Bregman looks like he just got a new toy.

Alvarez is now tied with Tyler White in home runs


Tubby might FINALLY be out of a job

I've been saying for a while that Alvarez has the build and body type of a true slugger and he's still getting bigger at only 21. He can easily will balls out of the park.

I think his adaptation to the bigs will be just fine and fill in our DH role nicely. I wish he was able to play 1B though, not sure why he's not really slated for that role based on comments from JLH.

Surely he's no worse than Carlos Lee in LF. Esp. @ home w Jake or Straw covering half his turf for him.

Pretty amped about this Yordan call up. I've got Crawford Box tickets for Tuesday's game, so I've got a chance at snagging his first career HR. He'll probably put a couple into orbit before then, but a man can hope.


This was wishful thinking

Also that stolen base tips commercial segment with him right after the CS was unfortunate timing.

And he got thrown out on a horrible throw way on the other side of the bag.

I have been super impressed with Chirinos athleticism & defense. Why has he never played a full season? Has he had trouble staying healthy? He seems like he would have been a perennial All-Star based on what he has shown here.

As much as I have been loving Brantley, Diaz and even Miley. Cheerios is our best off season addition IMO

Overall A+++ for Luhnow this off-season. It seemed really quite, but very effective pieces added

Class act. Hopefully the team did the right thing and showered him in swag in return.
